What is better than a hearty meal in the winter time, soup, but not any soup, but “Cheesy, Ham, Sausage, Potato BACON Soup”. Yes, I said Bacon, almost a whole lb of bacon goes into this hearty warm potato soup and I’m not apologetic.
I don’t like the cold of winter, but I do love soup season. There is something comforting, snug and warm about the cold wind howling outside and sitting on the couch with your hands wrapped around a warm bowl that just creates memories of home.
Although I didn’t grown up making soup it has become my winter passion for the past several years. I haven’t had a can of Campbells in my cupboard for year. But I always have individual zip twist containers of frozen soup in the freezer.
Every batch or potato soup is a little different. Sometimes it’s thick and creamy other times it is full of chunky potatoes, ham, carrots, peas and celery.
Last weekend I made a large stock pot and we ate it all day long then had enough for Monday for our lunches.
